Eric Harris-Braun, A New Language for Wealth. May 2008
The current interpretation of wealth includes only those goods that are tradable. Eric Harris-Braun argues for a new system of wealth acknowledgement that accounts for wealth in the realms of measurable and acknowledgeable wealth. He then explores how we can incorporate these two unrecognized forms of wealth with a new writing system of our exchanges, including a new system called Open Money. This talk was given as part of the E. F. Schumacher Society's (www.smallisbeautiful.org) training seminar "Building Sustainable Local Economies" held May 21 to 25, 2008.
